Project Updates

Last week, we joined the National Consumers League Child Labor Coalition, the Alliance to End Slavery and Trafficking, and the Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation for a Congressional briefing on US policy and its impact on child labor and trafficking. We had the opportunity to see keynote speaker and 2014 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Kailash Satyarthi, whose program, Bach Bachao Andolan (Save Childhood), we are evaluating as part of an International Labor Affairs randomized controlled trial.
